Assignment posts allow you to manage and consolidate your assignments in a single location. You neither have to keep track of which students have turned in their assignments or which ones have not; nor do you need to worry about misplacing assignments at home, in the classroom, or somewhere in between. In addition, you are no longer limited to text. Now you are able to attach any type of file, such as images and videos or links to websites or YouTube videos.

You are now able to create Assignment posts and know the ins and outs of adding content to the posts, how students turn in assignments, and where you can find all the assignments in Google Classroom and Google Drive. You have learned how to recognize when students unsubmit their assignments or turn them in late.

In the next two chapters, we will go through various methods of grading assignments in Google Classroom. We will focus on providing meaningful feedback and tools to speed up the grading process.
